  • business models
  • recruitment and the BackonBoard project
  • setting up, and growth, in the UK
  • navigation of Government bodies
  • advice as to business opportunities between companies, including with companies outside the space sector
  • IP issues
  • presentation techniques and content

The Surgeries are currently always free of charge, and written feedback and advice will be provided to each company or individual. Several Government departments, Scottish Enterprise and Ofcom are supporting the Surgeries.
